This drama is cute, warm-hearted drama. All the characters developed in their ways.

Kim Seul Gi performs this role well and this role seems to be easy one for her. Ahn Hyo Seop has potentials and I think he can improve further in the future. However, the main characters do not have that strong chemistry. Their chemistry is ok and natural.

The music is great.

This is worth watching drama.

It's been a while since I have felt so much hate for a main character. Arrogant male leads in Korean dramas are everywhere and generaly I don't mind them, I quiet like them actually, because most of the time in the end their "arrogant" attitude is exagerated and underneath all of that, they're good people. But the description of this drama really isn't lying "Se-Gun is handsome and confident, but very vain read more and shallow".

The STORY here, of course, isn't anything original but it just screams fun! Comedy, romance and a cliche moral about beauty is really all we need to relax after a hard day and it really kind of had all that, but...

The CHARACTERS, especially the main male lead, were unlikable and that's an understatement in some cases. Se Gun is a shallow douche that only cares about looks. He's fine with everything about a girl as long as she's pretty. Sure, by the end he falls in love with the "ugly" (NOT!) girl and magically becomes a better person and a better character with some sappy development driven by, of course, a sad past. Now to begin with Se Gun's character isn't exactly the worst, they just handeled this type of male lead very badly, exagerating his flaws to the maximum and making him seem like the vainest person ever. Were this a full lenght drama I would have dropped it solely because of him. The female lead wasn't exactly a treat either. Her motivation for liking the main lead was the same - she claims to like beautiful things. The difference is that she just wasn't really a bitch about it...I don't know if that makes it okay though. Not to mention the fact that she had little to no self respect which I can kind of overlook as just a character trait but be warned.

90% of the cute moments in this drama were torture, because they were fake! While Nan Hee had her ring on, everytime something nice happened it was extremely bitter sweet because the writers just had to make sure that you know that Se Gun is only dating her because of her looks! I just could not overlook it, especially when the second love interest for our female lead was 10 times better than this jerk.

Sure the ending was cute as hell and I'm very into this "inner beauty matters the most" moral that I could almost overlook everything that's bad about this drama but I just can't, I won't even let myself! As a woman I respect myself too much to see such chararter as Se Gun be romanticised and justified. He even blamed everything on Nan Hee...*sigh* I just can't

Didn't notice anything horrible about the acting. Not a fan of So Hee's acting though. Happy that Seul Gi finally got a main role, sad that it had to be this drama. Don't remember anything about the music. The cinematography was as unintresting as ever.

There is absolutely nothing about this drama that's worth your time, you can look at a screenshot of the beauty that is Hyo Seop and you would have seen everyting good about this drama. Maybe...maybe if you're easily pleased then you will enjoy it but I really don't recommend it.

The 'ugly' and clueless girl has to deal with her piteous day to day while she tries to find her own dream. The female lead is also constantly compared to her more beautiful and successful sister/best friend.

In both dramas the lead actress is 'ugly' and falls in love with handsome, populair guy..

    Seriously 21 episodes? Most of Kdrama website only provide 6 episodes. Where are the rest? But eventho it just only 6 episodes, I really satisfied with the drama. The message delivered was very on point and Tae Hyun is so cute <3 ahh, not to forget the osts hihi..especially when they use 'Say Something'

    The drama was extremely good and I was shocked about time it took to finish. It was so quick but satisfying at the same time. Anyone who wants to watch a emotional short this if for you!

    I have to admit the main male lead was extremely good looking but the female lead was cute too!

    I think it could have been better if they kind of sped it up more, they spent so much time with her using the ring. To me it felt too one sided until close to the very end. It's an easy watch though, could have been better. 8/10.

    If inner beauty matters more than outer then you don't go for the guy with beautiful appearance but ugly personality. -_-

    Hyo Seop has a very good chemistry with Seul Gi... I really would love to see them in another drama...Cause he aint got no chemistry with the actress that paly his love interest in "Father is strange".

    At first I thought the plot wasn't that much and, oh god, Park Se Gun was annoying me so much! But, this is it, ladies and gentlemen, I kept watching and... I REALLY LIKED IT. Yeah. I mean, this drama, as other peolple here are saying, has a great and positive message and the end. And, oh, the end was cute though. I'm glad I didn't drop it.

    hmm how to rate this drama? tough nut to crack...plot was dreadful but execution was really good...especially actors were amazing...i did fall in love with main actor even through his character was absolute jerk who deserved only to be kicked to the his big arrogant ass...and i just couldn´t really understand what she did see in that jerk, because his personality was rotten to the core...well alright i can sort of see what but it´s only because actor did really good job in making this character at least little bearable...so big props to main actor..now he is definitely on my radar
